In talking with friends I’m finding that we’re a bit of an oddity so wanted to see if others are in a similar boat.

We don’t have cable or basic TV channels, only streaming, so we never watch the news and therefore my 7 year old is completely unexposed to current events. We are very proactive generally about exposing her to books with diverse characters, talking about history, quality, civil rights etc but we’ve rarely had to have that conversation within current events context unless she heard something at school, which obviously is not a thing right now. So I’m struggling with whether I should tell her about the protests going on right now. I don’t shy away from these conversations in any way when they come up but since she doesn’t know anything about it I also feel kind of awkward just bringing it up. Has anyone in a similar position found a good way to approach it?
